If you are thinking of applying for a place at our school for your child in Year 7, in the first instance, please attend our main Open Day at the end of September. We have 324 places in Year 7 and are heavily over-subscribed, so we recommend that if you are keen for your child to join us, you express us as your first preference. Should you not be able to attend our Open Day, visits from prospective parents and carers are welcomed during the Autumn term; please contact Student Services at the school should you wish to book a visit.
Occasionally we have places become available in year in all Year groups, so if you wish your child to transfer to our school from elsewhere, please contact School Admissions at the London Borough of Harrow to put their name on our waiting list.
Please note the increase in the Published Admission Number (PAN) from 300 to 324 for admission to Year 7 in 2018/19.
The school Admissions Service co-ordinates school admissions for Harrow Council. The service acts as a first point of contact for parents and carers for queries relating to transfer to high school or in year transfers. If you wish to apply to Nower Hill for a place for your child, please see the following link for further information:
